Don’t Return To Your Vomit – It is such a vivid and disgusting metaphor, but one worth considering.

If My Mom Were Me, I Wouldn’t Exist – “My mother absolutely did not want a child yet, did not want a life-sentence of possibly having to raise a handicapped child, did not want to see her goals and dreams and career derailed…”

The Gospel for Roman Catholics – For the Church is building a good library of articles, and that includes this one.

Why Bloggers Are Calling it Quits – CT has an interesting perspective on why a lot of bloggers have called it quits.

Sports on Sundays – I appreciate what Mark Jones says about the dangers of allowing your kids to play sports on Sundays. “Giving up worship for sports is not an option for Christians.”

Other People’s Flaws – “From thinking highly of myself, it’s only a short jump to thinking and speaking lowly of others.”

You need to stop talking to yourself in categories of condemnation and begin talking to God in categories of confession.

—Heath Lambert

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God. The man who quits drugs will still react when he catches a whiff and the woman who gave up alcoholism will still struggle when…
